I just started reading the book "Introduction to 3D Game Programming with DirectX" and  I'm having a really hard time trying to run a sample program in the first chapter on my machine.  The chapter talks about setting up the sample project with the DirectX SDK and VS2010.  However, my environment is Windows 8 and VS2012.

 

After reading online, I found that the DirectX SDK is no longer needed on Windows 8 - for Metro style applications - but I'm trying to run the program as a desktop application.  On the forums for the book, the author posted some instructions to get the programs to run on Windows 8.  I followed those, and I'm getting the following message:

So far I've tried quite a few things and nothings seems to work.  I think the problem has to do with the color.fx file.  The complete project is at the following bitbucket repository:

If anyone could help me get this to run I would really appreciate it.
